Registration will open soon for the 25th annual Women’s Only 5K Walk & Run supporting the Cone Health Mammography Scholarship Fund and the Cone Health Alight Program. Each year, the fund provides about 600 women with screening mammograms that they would otherwise be unable to afford, and many more receive emotional, educational and financial support during their treatment.
REGISTER FOR THE 2017 RACE
“Mammography is the gold standard in diagnosing breast cancer,” says Women’s Hospital President Debbie Cunningham, DNP. “A lack of money shouldn’t be a reason for not getting this lifesaving exam.”
In 2016, the Women's Only 5K featured 2,111 participants who raised $122,387 to support the fight against breast cancer.
The cancer experts at Cone Health Cancer Center treat more cases of breast cancer than any other type. Cone Health treated 904 cases of breast cancer in 2015. Mammograms are a crucial part of early detection.
“We are very good at treating breast cancer at Cone Health Cancer Center. And early detection through mammography is very important,” says Vice President of Oncology Services Skip Hislop. “And this event makes mammograms possible for hundreds of women in our community.”
